7LemonsHouse Yoga Holiday Spain Program

This retreat will be focused on yoga, silence walking, meditations and healing music meditations, seasonally themed activities, hiking and massage for a deeper relaxation. This retreat is a great opportunity to enter in contact with the ocean, enjoy the outdoors, share activities, get active, explore new places, discover something new, and make new friends.

Coastal walking

Breathe the fresh and regenerative salty Atlantic sea air and discover unique places by walking on Fuerteventura. The island really offers great surprises for those who step out at this tourist place. The rewards for this extra effort are interesting flora and fauna, intriguing shapes of sand and rock, absolute tranquillity, pitch black skies at night, and last but not least, superb and unforgettable views.

Crater walking

There are plenty of opportunities to walk reasonable distances along beaches and coastlines, often with almost anybody else around. The house is just next to one of the most beautiful volcanic craters called Calderon Hondo. From the viewing platform at the top, there is a really amazing view for miles around like the Corralejo dunes. You will have a picnic on the crater and enjoy the view, or you can reach the top to enjoy the sundown or the bright full moon.

Yoga classes

During the yoga classes, you will work on pranayama (breath control), asana (poses), and meditation. You will discover how your breath can ease not only your mind but help you deepen your practice as well. Together with the group, you will find out how the poses can work for you personally. The classes use postures and stretch in combination with the breath to develop flexibility and relaxation, encourage the proper alignment of the body, and bring balance, strength, and calmness to the practitioner. You will also be focused on mantra and meditation to release stress and tension by reaching a state of deep awareness.

Included excursions

During this retreat, you will go on bike tours and experience coastal and crater walking.
